Advanced Micro Devices announced Tuesday that it broke the Guinness world record for fastest central processing unit (CPU) by overclocking.

Overclocking is the process of making a microchip run at a faster than intended without malfunctioning.

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based microchip maker reported that a team of overclockers worked together to push the AMD FX processor a.k.a. "Bulldozer" to a frequency of 8.429GHz. The previous world record was 8.308GHz.

I reckon if you prime95 it, the liquid cooling wouldn't be holding up that amount of heat.

I don't get liquid cooling. How exactly does it work, and what happens when it starts leaking all over your computer? :3

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_cooling

It's the same concept as your car's radiator. You conduct the heat away from the heat source using liquid flowing through a pipe of some sort. Although with the liquid helium, it turns to gas at it's boiling point (−452.07 F), and I don't think they used piping (looks like a reservoir instead of a heat sink fan on top of the processor).
